I know some people that were upset that they missed out. Truth be told I just picked up another one as soon as they re-opened it because I was previously regretting not buying it for one more account. It's possible DBG is comfortable with how much of their money is from micro transactions/expansions versus subs. Case and point, my fiancé & I bought 3 premium editions of ROS when it was on sale earlier this year and about $200 in DBC between our accounts, so we spent about $410 outside of subs. We only had 2 accounts monthly subbed at a time we subbed midyear but annualized our sub's would've been $360 since it was the monthly rate. DBG probably doesn't care that we're not spending $360 on two subs next year because we just paid them $1,200 for membership upfront & the company probably assumes the bulk of their EQ revenue from us will continue to be Marketplace/expansions purchases, maybe more now that we have 4 All Access accounts instead of just 2. I suspect Benito is correct that this could just be an indicator that DBG is going to monetize more through micro transactions. However, I trust DBG is going to stay true to the concept of not letting players "pay for power". If you think about it, they already offer neat microtransactions for things like Heroes Forge armor, merc. slots, and key rings. You don't need these things at all to the play the game, but they make it a little more enjoyable and some are willing to pay for the convenience, decorations, or fun cosmetics. So in brief, I'm not worried since it could just indicate that DBG is going to make more from microtransactions than subs. Edit: Trying to fix my formatting, I give up!
